Huntingdonshire to be hit by ‘duck bomb’

Members of the WI in the Huntingdon and Peterborough area have organised a ‘Duck Bomb’ - and promise not to send any feathers flying.
On Friday and Saturday, April 24 and 25, a raft of hand crafted little yellow duck will be left as gifts in public places for others to find as random acts of kindness.
Each duck will be fitted with a tag that invites the finder to take their gift home to brighten their day and to visit the Little Yellow Duck website to find out more about organ donation. Finders can also register online and state where they found their duck in order to fill a world map.
‘The Little Duck Project’ is a worldwide initiative set up by the ‘Time to Talk’ campaign aiming to get people talking about organ donation.
The campaign encourages people to think about organ donation and then talk about their decision to someone close to them, therefore potentially making it easier for grieving families to fulfil their loved ones wishes.
Anna Bradley-Dorman, press officer for the Huntingdon and Peterborough Federation of WIs says: “The WIs in this area are delighted to be working in conjunction with ‘The Little Yellow Duck Project’ which encourages people to become donors.”
Cambridgeshire County Libraries, Peterborough City Hospital, retailers and sport clubs throughout the area have agreed to support the ‘Duck Bomb’.
